Why monkey and tiger

The monkey and tiger are two animals from the five element model of Chinese Medicine.

Monkey represents the Earth element; nurturing support for the self, digestion and the spine.

Tiger represents the Metal element; engaging with others across boundaries/differentiation between good and bad, the breath and the hips.

So - with Monkey and Tiger Chi Kung

  • We look at how we look after ourselves and how we interact with others
  • We encourage our digestive and breathing processes
  • We loosen up and strengthen our spine and our hips

Basically if we've got these things right then life is pretty good!
